Last season, the 23-year-old African star featured in 39 games in all competitions for the Bundesliga side and directly contributed in 16 goals (9 goals and 7 assists).
On the other hand, Fabinho, who mainly played as a defensive midfielder for Monaco, scored 8 goals and provided 5 assists in the last campaign (46 appearances in all competitions).
The new signings can play in multiple midfield positions and we can expect the duo to start regularly in the Liverpool XI under the management of Jurgen Klopp.
The German boss likes to play 4-3-3 and it will be intriguing to see who will partner Keita and Fabinho in the center of the park next season. Liverpool have more than a few midfielders in the squad such as Henderson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana and Grujic.
